Jaguar XF


Jaguar

The 2013 Jaguar XF comes with standard features which include a 240-horsepower 4-cylinder engine, 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters, 18-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights with LED accents, a sunroof, push-button start, rosewood veneers, heated power front seats, leather upholstery, Bluetooth, parking sensors and a 10-speaker 250-watt audio system with a touchscreen interface. 

The XF model’s interior hails from a few years back, and it could benefit from an update however,  it still manages to emit an upscale feel inside, especially with Jaguar’s distinctive rotary shift knob rising out of the center console upon ignition. 

Front seat comfort is generally adequate in the XF, but I found it to have surprisingly limited adjustability though rear passengers will enjoy ample legroom. In keeping with British tradition, both back and front seat areas are treated to liberal applications of leather and wood trim.

 The XF is available with appealing features like the fabulous Meridian audio system, Bluetooth connectivity and two USB ports for iPods .

Higher trims also get a standard hard drive-based infotainment system with navigation, voice recognition capability and digital music storage. The rear-wheel drive Jaguar XF we tested came with a supercharged 4-cylinder engine that produces 240 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque. Jaguar claims that the car can accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in 7.5 seconds and fuel economy is estimated at 19 miles per gallon city/30 mpg highway.

As far as drivability is concerned the 3.0 litre model we tested gave a satisfactory ride/handling but  maybe lacked the wow factor that the fancier models are promising. Overall, the XF doesn’t feel like a big car and holds the road like an oversized sports coupe with road and wind noise kept to a minimum giving a relaxing and composed ride.
